Courses in psychology provide an understanding of human behavior and mental processes from a scientific perspective. The psychology majors prepare students for careers that involve knowledge of behavior along with skills in data analysis and research. We offer a Bachelor of Science program for students who wish to pursue graduate programs in psychology and related fields or in medical school. We offer a Bachelor of Arts program for students who intend to work in social services, mental health agencies, or business-related areas such as human resources. There are many opportunities for students to become involved in research in our extensive lab facilities and in field experiences in the community.
For further details on programs offered in the Department of Psychology, see Program Descriptions in this Catalog.
